Game description

There are always 2 people in a team who make up 2 larger teams of wheelbarrows. One player is the wheelbarrow itself. On the start signal each of the teams start „rolling“ towards a bowl full of water containing an apple which is 30m away. This apple must be fished out with the mouth and brought back to the team. Once they have arrived the next team starts. In the meantime the group leader places a new apple in the bowl.


It obviously also works without the tub and apple. It would also work with a chocolate covered marshmallow.


The winning team is the one who was fastest but also the team without any points deducted for losing the apple.
